The Preservatory is a place for creation; a farm based artisanal food production company, specializing in seasonal preserves. The Preservatory preserves are made in copper kettles using traditional cooking methods and innovative flavour pairings. Using ‘at their peak’ in-season fruits, much of which is grown right on our farm, Vista D’oro. Their delicious and versatile preserves are meant for pairing and sharing; served on a cheese board, as a glaze for roast meats or simply alongside fresh baked scones. They've been proudly making fruit shine since 2002.

The Preservatory is owned and operated by author Lee Murphy with her partner and husband, Patrick who is the winemaker and farmer who supplies all the fresh fruit for the delicious preserves. Their preserves have been featured in Country Living magazine, enRouteCanadian Living, and many other publications. Now you too can celebrate local with their book!
